All the wonders of Copenhagen in one day with private driver guide

For this private tour, we will get around all the major sights in Copenhagen, we will also pass through some of the everyday Copenhagen to show you the more modern side of the Town as well as how the "natives" live and function.
at 12:00 noon, we will be at the queens palace (Amalienborg) to watch the traditional change of the guards.

During the ride, examples of architecture and design will be pointed out and discussed, as well as I will explain about modern denmark and our social welfare system, healthcare system, schools, retirement plans and also the democratic system of denmark.

There will be lots of photo opportunities and if you may wish so, time for shopping or visiting a museum or two.

Because of the duration of the ride, I have included a "lunchbreak" so if you wish so, you can enjoy a traditional danish lunch or perhaps a nice salad or sandwich in one of our great parks (should the weather be suitable)


We will start out at the Little mermaid, and slowly climb through the history and architecture of Copenhagen, passing the Citadel, the Queens palace, Nyhavn Canal, Parliament, Stock exchange, Cathedral of Copenhagen - Our Ladies church.
We will watch the change of the guard at the queens palace and round it off with a nice traditional danish lunch.
Immediately after lunch we will turn the tour a bit more urban and see how the danes lived before, and how they live today.
We will pass through local neighborhoods, see some of the spectacular award winning architectural gems of todays Copenhagen, talk about Copenhagenization by including health and environmentally friendly solutions into everyday living, we will go by wind turbines (and touch one).
On completion, you will have a unique insight into Copenhagen and why Copenhagen is named the best place in the world to live in 2013.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour was wonderful! Michael is a fabulous tour guide, highly intelligent and informative, and made our introduction to Copenhagen very special. He is accommodating, friendly, kind and knowledgeable, and showed us parts of this beautiful city that many tourists may not get to see (in addition to all the typical and exciting sights). We even had time for a typical Danish lunch that was delicious. If you want a great local experience, hire Michael!
